  • VIDEO: Mitchell Joachim on living treehouses

    I just published this article over on Inhabitat recently, and thought I would re-post it here, since Mitchell Joachim is currently teaching at Columbia's GSAPP.

  • GLOBAL WARMING FLOODS LONDON.... In Second Life

    This has very little to do with school but I love it. Good procrastination fodder....

    Philip Nobel over at Metropolis Magazine has written a hilariously scathing critique of the typical characters you will find in any architecture student's review.

I'm a bit late to the party - I see that all the other GSAPP bloggers have been going at it fast and furiously since September, so I feel like a bit of a slacker.
